to china. >> david: president obama attacking governor romney over private investments in china, but what about sending taxpayers' dough, your money to china under his watch, like the $1.8 million stimulus money spent on this federal building that reportedly used solar panels from china, or more money from the stimulus that reportedly purchased wind turbines from china. mike, you say the definition of high accuracy. how so? >> president obama is being a huge hypocrite. he's taking taxpayer money, throwing it over to china, and criticizing romney for using private capital and investing it in china. romney is doing it for profit, president obama is doing it for political profits. what will obama say about the pensions that profit from investments in china? this shows the president is absolutely clueless and is a good example of why the economy is doing so bad. >> david: mark, is this hypocrisy? >> neither side is clean here. this is just election year table pounding. we need china as a trade partner. we don't want a trade war with china. we're very dependent on their economy and they're dep

. bret? >> bret: mother jones released another video. it says, shows governor romney in another bad light. 1985 video. mitt romney's discussing bain capital's business strategy that included buying stakes in undervalued companies and then eventually harvesting them at a profit. obama campaign jumped all over that word. what what is the romney camp saying about that? >> the romney campaign came out quickly after that and said this d. "in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way." we should point out harvesting is a common term in private equity, as in harvesting the investment. a manager i talked to said it's not a bad thing because at that time you have grown a company and created an awful lot of jobs. bret? >> bret: thank you. the economy went from bad to worse in the second quarter. that is the take-away from the new gdp numbers. chief white house correspondent ed henry shows us how
and attacking. 47% say the news organization spends more time defending president obama and attacking governor romney. only 16% think it's the other way around. jim, are the polls and the media all tilted toward the president? >> it could be. i mean, for example, when the durable goods orders falls 13% in one month, the he had had line on "the washington post" next day is business investment pools in, and the analyzed below 100% is a mere cooldown. >> you need a lot of the coverage and sounds like the race is over, we haven't had the first debate yet. >> look, to be fair looking at the polls, i personally don't think it looks great for romney right now. but the race could change five times between now and election day, especially we haven't had the debate. the media is sort of wishful thinking trying to write off romney and i normally do not buy into the media that the media is completely on board on one side, this is the exception, this campaign season has been especially egregious in terms of them ignoring things bad about president obama and obsessing over things that are-- that mitt romney
the presidenti dwn they debate health .re the back and forth between president obama and governor romney on this issue will be i think fascinating. we'll look forward to that. >> yeah, erick's not. trust me. >> i'm looking forward to seeing how they debate. health care's a very important subject. >> yes, it is nk very much. roland martin, erickson, good discussion. in this sprint to election another pect of mitt romney's wealth in texas could become a hot political topic. you're going to find up with his quote i dig it. hey america, en though s ilisa rwearing them, the new depend silhouette briefs for charity to prove h great the fit is even under a fantastic dress. the best protection now looks, fits and feels just like underwear. we invite you to get a free sample and try one on too. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" when a flo of chestires atened a thousand american jobs... vo: tough on china? not mitt romn. it was president obama whoto up to china and protected aman worrs. mitt ry attaed obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our worke
. that was the assumption that they made. that is like immediately the obama campaign ads. anything governor romney ever said would support the view that he is going to increase taxes, it is just a lie. the basic principle. everything governor romney has said, i will say it now, he knows that is true. if he is proposing a $5 trillion tax cut, you push a campaign that is consistent with everything governor romney has ever said. if you think that it doesn't add up and if he can't get to 28%, they would have a different change in rates. governor romney believes he can get to 28%. in office, he will try to do it. there is no way in hell that anybody believes he will increase taxes and i can't believe the obama campaign will say that. and an economist would be up here repeating the stupid and inane talking plants -- points. >> says when governor run it will cut income tax rates by 20% across the board, that is a lower priority promised? >> he has always said, always accepted by every respectable economists is that we needed revenue neutral reform. >> the accusation is that he said things that all of them can
look at the facts. did he take the work requirement out of welfare? >> i think what the obama administration has said is that no, they're trying to give governors the flexibility to increase the amount of work that goes into receiving welfare benefits. you're saying you don't buy that. >> no, no. you always have the capacity to add work. there's never been a requirement that you can't have more work. the requirement that they're waiving was saying that people don't have to work to get welfare. that's the change that they proposed. i disagree with that direction. i think the president also -- i disagree with the direction on the work requirement as it related to food stamps. taking work requirements out of government assistance is, in my opinion, a very bad course to take and creates a culture of dependency. we help people who need help. we want to help people that need help. but the idea of removing work requirements i think is a mistake. >> keeping them honest, as you just heard, jim acosta say politic fact gave that rating a pants on fire. the "washington post" gave it four
president obama's ahead, what does it mean for governor romney? does it mean that the debates are basically make or break? >> yes, in a word, yes. because anderson, if you were just, say it was just ohio and florida, you could dedicate more campaign time, send governor romney, send paul ryan, send more tv ad money, you could send them into those two states, right? kou try to essentially carpet bomb those two states. as you noted, pollinalso shows him down in virginia. polling also shows him brand new today down in iowa, shows him down in nevada, shows him down in wisconsin. it's a dead heat in colorado and a dead heat in new hampshire. when you have all this ground to cover, you don't have the time and resources. six weeks is a lot of time, but you can't change so many different states. what does he need? a national shift in the dynamic, especially on the question you just mentioned to gloria, who would best handle the economy. if governor romney can't change that, especially in that big first debate, he's in trouble. >> it's interesting, gloria, there's a lot of talk of obama's approval ra
obama and mitt romney go head-to-head in virginia today. in springfield governor romney criticized the defense on defense cuts. today he talked about specific alternatives. >> yeah, julie carey joins us to tell us about that. >> for many virginians with military ties, the president is also their commander in chief. governor mitt romney and president barack obama tried to make the case they would best look out for the interests of veterans and those on active duty. in an american legion hag not far from the pentagon, mitt romney directed a war of words at president obama. faulting him for the budget deal on capitol hill that will lead to deep defense cuts. and could cost virginia up to 200,000 defense jobs. >> when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> reporter: but even some romney supporters have urged him to provide more specifics about how he'll cut trillions and keep defense spending intact. he starts by scaling back health care reform. >> there are other programs that some people like, i even like that we're
of kids so i commend the governor what he did. >> what president obama, sir, with all due respect, what about private sector incentives, it is private businesses which people do create on their own. you are right. >> and the president has proposed -- >> give me one idea that would help boost the private sector. >> it is interesting today, larry, the biggest front-runner, in terms of creating jobs is manufacturing. we know looking back it is easy to say that we lost 300 to 500,000 jobs every year. the fact of the matter is that is what we should be investing in. i commend the president for trying to get corporations. >> governor gilmore, we are onto the tax subject now. we merged it with the prosperity subject. corporate tax reforms should pt affect the tax right? by the way, why haven't you talked more in your campaign about the 20% tax cut and the corporate tax cut from 35 to 25%. supply sides have been critical of you and your running mate because you seemed to have back add way from the tax issue which even president obama believes would have stimulate the economy. >> i'm sitting her
controversy involving the botched call at the end of the monday night football game gave president obama and governor romney a chance to use sports psychology. >> it was the call that had every talking on tuesday. >> who has it? >> including president obama. out of sight of cameras on the south lawn of the white house, he told the press it was terrible, and i've been saying for months we have to get our reves back. late wednesday night, the nfl and refs made a deal. so when mitt romney was asked about it it was strange when he said this "i hope they do." and mitt romney was asked who is your driver? and he said there's a lot of drivers i like, thanks. rory davenport is a form er tennis player. romney comes across as an owner and it's hard to connect with an owner. obama feels like a true sports fan. >> when david cameron came, president obama gave him a taste of the ncaa basketball. president obama isn't always on his game, so to speak. in boston this summer, he jokingly thanked the city for trading a beloved red sox player to his team, the white sox. >> i just want to thank you for yuke
] >> obama: no, no, governor romney, he is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> consider your expectations lowered. >> stephanie: all right. >> how low can you go? >> stephanie: karen in virginia you are on the "stephanie miller show." hi karen. >> hi, miss stephanie. how are you. >> stephanie: good. okay. >> caller: it is pouring down rain here in virginia. cantor's tears because wayne powell came out swinging in that debate. ♪ let's hear it for the boy ♪ >> caller: he started out swinging and all you could see was cantor just -- you could tell he was getting furious. >> he was probably bitchy faced -- >> caller: he didn't answer any questions. he danced around -- it is all about how these attacks that's not getting anything done in washington -- >> yeah, but cantor is not getting anything done in washington. >> stephanie: yeah who would be behind that? >> caller: gee i don't know maybe him. >> stephanie: that is awesome. i had a feeling that wayne con for was going to kick ass. >> caller: he did. why last year when we were facing the debt crisis and the shutdown of
and make people wonder in the middle east about president obama's judgment? >> governor romney said he would support democratic values. on another hand saying he would basically fund candidates to win that are friendly to the united states. how is that espousing democratic values? isn't it a little inconsistence there? >> not at all. first of all, take a look what was going on in egypt and realize not netly democratic values espoused. if i see the islamic brotherhood, i don't tear what face they're puts on, i've studied this and investigated and prosecuted for 35 years. you tell me the islamic brothers have changed their stripes? you're too naive to the protecting the united states of america. >> the muslim brotherhood. >> yeah. we didn't look behind this enough. we didn't look behind wa we were creating. it doesn't mean it wasn't going to happen, were ut it should have happened much more gradually. exactly what jimmy carter did in iran. >> sdts that estimate how much influence we actually had? his bus was leaving the station in egypt. mubarak was on his way out. hillary clinton and ot
obama getting some distance from romney. it still is competitive. governor thompson was perceived the best republican nominee. he had a very competitive primary. so wisconsin suddenly was back in the republican column. host: this tonight their first and only debate? guest: i don't know, but it's going to be an interesting evening, because governor thompson is a statewide grand. he's known as tommy and not the governor. he will seek to label baldwin as a liberal. she is one of several members of congress who is from a single district and is trying to run statewide. she will try to define herself in a positive manner and he will try to put her in a. negative host: we will broadcast that said 9:00 p.m. eastern, tommy thompson and tammy baldwin in their debate. there is another debate we will carry at noon eastern time. nebraska, give us an update. guest: that once seemed to be competitive around late winter, early spring. democrats have been back and forth. the seat opens up because conservative democrat ben nelson decided not to run for reelection. former senator bob kerrey decided
by winning the debate and the election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters, and expertes say neither are prone to making major gaffes. but if there is one thing that history has taught us when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. anderson cooper, cnn. >>> once again, the night is tomorrow, the president versus his challenger, face to face, special coverage begins at 7:00 eastern, right here on cnn and on cnn.com. >>> a lot more news developing this hour. watch this. america's top guy in afghanistan says he will not allow troops to be murdered. but do these insider attacks mean a change in strategy is coming? i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >>> one pilot calls it embarrassing. seats coming loose on a major airline. is this part of a larger problem? >>> plus, carol simpson, the first woman to moderate a presidential debate tells me what to expect torrow night. >>> and police officers accused of raping a woman, but they press charges against her and now the backlash. [ male announcer ] alka-seltzer plus presents the cold truth. i have a
have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it imperatively." instead, it was something like, "i meant i would try." why do they just cannot say that the facts have changed when it challenged on flip-flops? >> the obama promises, and the extent to which he has kept them or is working on them or has reneged on them, maybe you have got the most updated to respond to that. >> yes, we have a feature called the obameter, and it will be much easier next time. my sense is, one, i do not believe they get asked directly about these things, and it may not be that the facts have changed, more the calcu
his record, i have more confidence that president obama can get that done than governor romney appeared >> -- then governor romney. >> right now, you're trying to get a sales tax increase to pay for pre-k. can you defend, sitting next to someone who does not like texas famously, the decision to brought to market with a tax increase even for something you so strongly believe in? many mayors are with yo but there are a lot of elected officials and san antonio who are not with you. >> basically, i fundamentally believe that brainpower is the currency of success. in the 21st century global economy. those communities that created will be the communities that thrive in our market economy. and those communities that do not will be the ones who fall behind. san antonio, i believe, needs to make a huge investment in education. that investment is not limited to more money. it also means getting parents involved. it also means expecting more from everybody along whole education ecosystem, from administrators to policy-makers to teachers come expecting more out of everyone. so what i have
. state with cnn for the latest on all of this and the expected phone call between president obama and prime minister netanyahu and the other phone call with governor romney. we'll bring you the details as soon as they're available. quick break. i was talking to my best friend. i told her i wasn't feeling like myself... i had pain in my pelvic area... and bleeding that wasn't normal for me. she said i had to go to the doctor. turned out i had uterine cancer, a type of gynecologic cancer. i received treatment and we're confident i'll be fine. please listen to your body. if something doesn't feel right for two weeks or longer, see your doctor. get the inside knowledge about gynecologic cancers. knowing can make all the difference in the world. with less chronic osteoarthritis pain. imagine living your life with less chronic low back pain. imagine you, with less pain. cymbalta can help. cymbalta is fda-approved to manage chronic musculoskeletal pain. one non-narcotic pill a day, every day, can help reduce this pain. tell your doctor right away if your mood worsens, you have unusual ch
is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salience in something like a presidential debate. so other than health care, i do not see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. and here's why. no major national political figure has attacked affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it isind of remarkable. the republicans who, during the 1990's for a while, we're seeing some sort of political profit attacking affirmative action given the polls don't do it anymore. and the democrats, john kerry coming nearly 1990's, joe lieberman in the early 1990's and others, said maybe this time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down that road. but that has all gone. i have spoken with republican politicians. why is that? and the answer was that we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it is just not w
andpa! i love y grama! w'r a real fisherman. [ male announcer ] humana. president and governor romney all over it. it started with the "today" show. then it was romney. followed byresident obama's u.n.peech on theables chls esidt oba on "the view" and romney's interview with brian williams. the president speaking at the global initiative as well today, mnasth interviews r starters. today. he'll rally where he and his running mate paul ryan have that big bus tour. cnn editor mark murray joins us from washington. i love the swirl effectecause that's kind of how the dayelt with so many tngsoing on th conba initiative speech for romney, education nation. it's a swirl of media coverage for these two men today. >> and, tamron, we still have six weeks to go as far as the scli f pdeba anmittomne you ow, pt of it today had to do with the scheduling. you had the u.n. general assembly, the speech, the events, nbc's education nation. but you are right. every time you're loong ahe entoerrent obama giving a eem, then mitt romney, then president obama, and then mitt romney, we're going to continue t
an endorsement of obama care in the process. governor romney is one of the great stories over the last two years that he's been running. at bottom, at heart, he's proud of the law. he tried to find a way in the primaries to be for his own law and not give that up and say i'm proud of what we did in massachusetts. he knew he couldn't be -- he had to figure out a way to be against obama care. he found himself in a ridiculous position of saying i love my own law but it's not good law for the rest of the country even though i said that in an op-ed two years ago. i claimed that to get through the republican primaries. it's an impossible straddle and one that maybe he had to do in order to get through the primary electorate now in this ridiculous position of having to -- he should be proud of the law. a law he is proud of. he hasn't been able to embrace because of the complicated primary dynamics. this is where he should have been all along. it's hard to see it giving him political advantage it might have under other circumstances. >> it shows political weaknesses on mitt romney's part. the first is w
not kept. and i've noticed so far that the tendency of both governor romney and president obama were challenged by a voter or a journalist is to not attempt to say well, the facts have changed. the facts are different. the fact is i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief. instead, there are sort of various levels of equals equivocation. one is when president obama was i think talking to a latino group who challenged him on his failure to keep the promise of the immigration reforms he intended to make. and right then and there i was hoping that the president would say the picture is different. let's look at it empirical. instead he said i kept have the promise or what i meant is i would try. i am wondering why candidates don't use the strongest possible response, rhetorically, which is the facts have changed. when challenged on flip-flops' or failure to keep promises. >> you track obama's promises to the extent which he's kept them were working on them or reneged on them so maybe you have the most data to respond to that. >> we have the feature called the o
this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, talking about flat line, that is one of the crises of the jobs problem in this country that has been a reported. and let you mention it. tell me what you think the response should be. so far it has been just to tap the bailout package, the big stimulus in 2009. shouldn't it be a labour participation rates? that has been tumbling. creating jobs, but people are jumping out of the work force left and right. >> leaving jobs that pay $30 an ho
the challenge mitt romney faces against president obama, the clearest shift from the debates came in the 2000 race pitting governor george w. bush of texas against vice president al gore. it resulted from a rare combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they we
a governor who is really -- who has done three things that barack obama has not done. he's balanced a budget. he's cut taxes. and he focused like a laser on job creation, which last time i checked are the exact same things mitt romney is talking about doing, getting federal spending under control, looking at ways to create jobs, he's got a plan to create 13 million jobs when he takes office, and doing the kinds of things that -- cutting taxes, getting regulations, the wind in our face, which is what john kasich has called it, that's been coming from washington since barack obama has been the president. so, you know, if mitt romney is sticking to that message, ohio is a great indication that that's exactly what will work. that's exactly what will help fix the united states' economy in the way that governor kasich and other leaders here have begun the process of fixing the ohio economy. but no one would suggest the job is done yet. no one would suggest ohioans are exempt from their portion of the $16 trillion federal deficit. we have got a long way to go. we need a partner in washington to hel
to learn any more details in terms of what president obama's planning to do? i'll go to you, morris, with that first in. >> we don't have any details on what the challenger is going to do. governor romney said he'll create 12 million jobs and the president has laid out a vision, put a marker in the ground and does have a track record to run on if you look at what he's been able to do in four years in moving us from the worst economy, almost a depression to where we are now in a recovery moving in the right direction. the devil will be in the details and the governor just can't sit there and say i'll create 12 million new jobs, trust me. >> terry, do you come out with the details during a debate like this around the table? i've been told repeatedly you don't do it until you win, frankly. >> well these debates are not great places to come out with a detailed plan, the amount of time each candidate has to address the issue also be limited. clearly both candidates will press, both guy also press the other one on some of the details in an advantaged way. i heard the debate earlier about
would it be like to have this president with a lame duck scenario where he has no governor, where he can do without the notion that he has to get re-elected again. do you see this as a big market issue, in terms of dividend taxes, obama care, taxes and higher fees there? >> i most certainly do. i think he's going to try to push his agenda. some people want to look back too the clinton years when he lost big time in the midterms just as obama did. >> november '93. >> clinton gave ground. obama has given no ground. i don't know there's any indication he'll give any ground this time. that's a big mistake if that's the case. i hope not. but it appears that's a real possibility. >> how times have changed. i thought mitt romney had a bit of a -- he could do a bit of a "saturday night live" skit, he had some good laughs there, but think about al gore, vice president to clinton, how often did he use president clinton when he was campaigning in 2000? >> times do change, you know. right now you go with the hot hand. president clinton obviously the hot hand. >> if president clinton is the hot hand
